Modules eligible to be listed in the table
Only Microsoft native modules or popular third party modules for the Windows platform are intended to be listed here.
Native modules are those shipped directly with an operating system, like the ActiveDirectory module.
Other modules must be officially published on PowerShellGallery.
A popular module has at least a few thousand downloads.
You can check the popularity of a module directly on PowerShellGallery.
The compatibility is established on the Windows platform and between:
- The latest generally available version of PowerShell 6.x.
- The latest version of the concerned module
The compatibility status can be:
- Native which means the module is natively compatible without the need of using the WindowsCompatibility module
- Compatibility module which means the module is compatible only via the WindowsCompatibility module
- Not compatible

Isn’t PowerCLI from VMware?
Yes it is from VMware.
VMware.PowerCLI is the official name on the PowerShell Gallery.
According to the official document, this module is compatible with PowerShell 6 on MacOS and Ubuntu, but unfortunately not yet on Windows.
Ah I misread the text. I thought you only wanted to list Microsoft modules. Interesting that a VMware module works first on macOS and Ubuntu and not Windows.
I have updated the first phrase of the paragraph defining eligible modules in order to be more clear.
DELL and HP are also providing interesting popular modules which could be evaluated.
